    Them: "How are you doing?"

    Me: "My hate sustains me."

    God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform; He plants his footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm. You fearful saints fresh courage take, The clouds you so much dread are great with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head. Judge not the Lord by your feeble sense, But trust him for his grace; Behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face. William Cowper

    That's what I say when somebody answers "oh, pretty good under the circumstances"

    I usually say something like "in spite of all expectations, including my own, I'm still alive."

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Howdy!
    What is "Hey, howdy, hey" a contraction for?
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
